LAHORE, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 23rd Jan, 2022 ) :Construction and housing is a booming industry in Pakistan spurred by Prime Minister Imran Khan's construction package and it is the right time for investors to tap the potential Pakistan's real estate sector through partnerships and investment.

Punjab Board of Investment & Trade (PBIT) Chairman Fazeel Asif Jah stated this while talking to the leading investors during a "Public-Private Dialogue on Construction and Housing Industry" arranged by PBIT here.

Punjab Board of Investment & Trade (PBIT) has taken this initiative and arranged public private dialogue to address the barriers faced by construction and housing investors. The meeting thoroughly deliberated upon the various issues faced by investors and suggested a number of proposals for their amicable resolution.

PBIT Chairman Fazeel Asif Jah welcomed the participants and said that significance of construction and housing industry in Pakistan's economy can hardly be debated.

The board organized this dialogue to bring together notable stake holders to prepare an action plan with a view to boost the sector for a better and improving economy. CEO PPP Amjad Ali Awan gave a comprehensive presentation on development projects.

Chairman Naya Pakistan Housing Development Authority Lt. Gen (retd) Anwar Ali Haider participated in the dialogue through zoom link.
